Brake Service & Repair

Improve Your Stopping Power with

Brake Repair and Services

Your braking parts wear down through the miles, greatly diminishing their stopping power. Over time, you may notice that your vehicle stops slower than usual, which puts you at risk during emergencies.

Our brake repair and services help resolve that issue immediately by replacing worn or damaged parts with quality components. We can also assess the overall condition of your braking system, allowing you to address all the issues potentially impacting your vehicle’s performance and safety.

Brake Repair & Services Handled at Our Shop

Whether you drive a mid-size commercial truck or a passenger car (including hybrids), we can complete the brake services you need to stay safe on the road. 

Depending on the cause of the problem, our team may then need to repair or replace your:

Our process starts with a vehicle health check, and we determine whatever brake services your vehicle needs. For instance, if your rotor has an uneven surface, we’ll recommend resurfacing with our on-the-car Pro Cut lathe. If wear and tear is beyond resurfacing, we’ll recommend brake rotor replacement.

If we can’t uncover the cause of the brake problem at a glance, we can do further diagnostics. Rest assured that these steps will help you save time and money in the long run by pinpointing the root cause.

Our team will then go over our recommendations with you. We want to have you understand why the work needs to get done and what to expect during the process. 

If you’d like to move forward, we’ll complete the work in full. We back our work with a 36-months/36,000 miles warranty. Your mechanic will then take your truck for a test drive to verify that the brakes work as expected before releasing the vehicle back to you.

Signs You Need Brake Pad Replacement

The brake pads wear out the fastest of all the parts in your disc braking system. You may notice any or all of the following signs when that happens.

You may also notice that you must push the brake pedal down further than usual to slow down or stop your car, truck, or van.

If you don’t get prompt service at the first sign of a problem, additional symptoms may point to the need for emergency repairs, such as grinding metal sounds and little to no brake pressure.
